Blow Off Steam
WHEN the ideas of an editor are published they are offered to
the public as a culmination of intensive thought. They are
his own personal convictions and are forwarded as food for read
ers’ minds that they may ponder over them, formulate and promul
gate their own thoughts. Propagation of these ideas may he
brought about through the columns of a newspaper. The Oregon
Daily Emerald invites such comment and will afford space for
writers who so desire to make known their ideas and ideals.
In this column opinion may be broadened University-wide. As
a purveyor of student opinion a section devoted to comment has
always proven a promoter of readability. Ideas on the operation
of campus functions, the activities of individuals, or various topics 1
of the day may readily find a vent.
This column will bo called The Safety Valve, as It will provide
an excellent opportunity for students, faculty, and others actively
engaged in University work to blow off steam. The length of
articles submitted will not exceed 200 words, and at all times the
editor maintains the privilege of withholding publication should the
article be a detriment to campus welfare. Letters should be ad
dressed: To the Editor, Oregon Daily Emerald.
Not as a department to arouse antagonism or disturb friend
ship, it is a promoter of good and worthwhile ideas which may have
been left untouched. The Emerald is a student paper, owned and
operated by associated students, and ’should he adequately repre
sentative of their thoughts. This, we repeat, may be brought about
by personal correspondence. Advocacies published in the editorial
column are those of the editor. That which he himself believes
true, just and worthy is promoted. Activities thought to he incor
rect are discouraged.
In this is found sufficient reason for opening a field to aspiring
Welcome Home the Warriors
HPHE EMERALD nominates today l'or its special hall of fame the
genial Doc Spears, who led 26 Oregon grid warriors to a spec
tacular victory over the Drake Bulldogs at Chicago last Friday
and who will return to the campus at noon today with his conquer
ors of the Middle West.
It will be a happy homecoming for Doc and his yellow-shlrted
warriors, for the gloom that settled over the outfit on its long trek
east was quickly dispelled under the lights of Soldiers’ Field as the
Webfoots sank the Drakes with their smashing attack.
Don’t forget the welcome-home rally this noon! Meet the
Shasta and let Doc know the Oregon spirit is backing him to the

V' men, even better than they will do later in the two, three,
or four years it takes themselves to move up, there must be some
notice taken of it. Except for one meeting this year freshmen ap
parently have always had that better record.
Each year the new class is gathered to decide whether or not
they will vote for a marked list of class officers. There is no secret
about it. They do not hide the fact that the meeting is called for
an election. The campus knows it.
An excellent record!
But ever after when class meetings are called only the elect
know what it is all about. Let it lie a dance proposed, a summer
vacation for athletes to be provided for from class funds, or a meet
ing to discuss ways and means to avoid University restrictions
let it be any of these or others, and there is only a notice that a
meeting of the class will be held. “All members must be there.”
These college men and women soon forget their high school
technique. They no longer invite by designating something of in
terest to occur; nothing so crude as that. Only freshmen would
require a host of classmen to hold a dance or deplete a treasury.

Fifty million pen points
can’t i»e wrong!
Long ago Waterman’s turned out its
fifty-millionth gold pen point. The
gold pen point is so important a part
of a fountain pen that Waterman s
make their own — and have done so
since ’87 were freshmen!
That’s one good reason why
Waterman’s pens write better. Another
is the patented spoon-feed that delivers
the ink in just the right quantity—no
skimping or blotting. 1 hen, size for
size, Waterman’s pens hold more ink
_won’t run dry in the middle of a lecture or exam.
There’s a Waterman’s for every taste and every
purse. Newest are the Patrician and the Lady Patricia
_the very last word in colorful beauty, as wed as
writing efficiency. The Patrician’s five jewel colors, its
great ink capacity, its extra large gold pen point and
its aristocratic lines, make it the natural choice for the
man who wants the best. Ten dollars. A pencil to
match, five dollars.
The Lady Patricia is the pen women have wanted
| for years. A smart feminine clasp locates it securely
in belt, pocket or handbag. Choice oi three smart
colors. Slender and graceful, yet it holds plenty of ink.
Five dollars—and three for the matching pencil.
When you select your Waterman s, have it nnea wuu
Waterman’s ink — that's the tie plus ultra of writing
luxury. Waterman’s new Blue Ink in the blue carton;
Blue Biack in the yellow carton. Use the first for note
taking and general correspondence, the second when
permanency is needed.
Every Waterman’s is guaranteed forever against defects.
